WoW! It is so unbelievable to me that it is April already!!! Time really does seem to slip away like sand in an hourglass!
With the recent onset of spring, new motivation has sprung up inside me! I have lived with a messy house for so long, that I have decided that if I don't change it now, it will never happen. My mom always taught me to keep house and keep things neat, but it obviously never seemed to click in my mind, until now. With this wonderful weather and more beautiful weather to come with summer, I have decided that I will not allow myself to be constantly under the bondage of having tasks needing to be done.
One of my closer friends is, well, she's a neat freak, and that is NOT a bad thing! She has been a great help to me in figuring out how to set myself a schedule of tasks to complete each day, so that in two weeks time, my house will be cleaned for spring, and I will be two weeks from starting homeschool. Those two weeks will allow me to get my stuff together, books, resources, teacher's plan book, etc.
I have also been reading on Fly Lady, which I love her system, but because of my perfectionism and procrastination....let me tell you, these two traits DO NOT go very well together, it's almost like taking a laxative and a sleeping pill at the same time LOL! For me, Fly Lady is not the way to get me motivated to start, but I know that it will be the way that I use to keep me motivated and on top of all of my daily chores and weekly zone missions.
With spring, I feel a new sense of purpose and direction, and I can't wait to see how this new season in my life will take shape and how it will lead!
Spring, how does it make you feel? Have you set some new goals for yourself?
